Please join us on Saturday, February 4th, for a Chinese cooking class led by CP Club member Brian Gottlieb.

Learn how to make delicious dumplings (some with meat, some without) and "banged-up" cucumber salad. Then put your culinary creations to the ultimate taste test - yours!

The program schedule includes:
4:00-4:30pm: A short talk about Chinese cooking history and theory
4:30-5:30pm: Cooking instruction
5:30-6:00pm: Eating!

Children ages 4+ are welcome to cook! However, please note that babysitting will not be provided for kids who don't join the class.

We are charging a fee of $10 per household to help cover the costs of ingredients. All drinks will be provided.

Why Chinese cooking? In Brian's own words:
"Cooking Chinese food has been a favorite hobby of mine for over 20 years. I started to learn how from a couple whom I shared a house with in high school who had recently emigrated from central China. I went on to major in Chinese literature at Reed College and took every opportunity to pick up additional cooking skills from my Chinese neighbors and classmates. After graduation, I moved to Beijing for seven years before returning to DC in 2008. I still cook Chinese regularly at home and achieved my highest cooking honor to date when my five year old son was told that he could eat anything for his birthday and asked for dumplings and shrimp fritters."
